PricewaterhouseCoopers has said it will bring in partners from abroad to
review audit procedures of Indian clients to prevent another situation like the
accounting fraud at Hyderabad-based IT outsourcing company Satyam.
Global PwC chief Sam DiPiazza, who this week announced he is stepping down
from the role after 35 years with the firm, said that a program had been put in
place to ensure audit quality was currently under review and involved a number
of partners and staff from firms outside India.
Earlier this month the firm in India said it was overhauling its leadership
following the discovery of a $1bn (£0.7bn) black hole in the accounts of Satyam,
which it audits.
